    Oh no no no!! You have it wrong. Striking anyone but a child is assault. It's perfectly ok to smack/slap/strike/tap/whatever-it's-called-these-days a child.

    And as i said above, if an adult spat in my face chances are they 'd have a very sore face, it would be a reaction from me I would not be thinking of the consequences

    An adult slapping a child is assault, a child spitting on an adult isn't, an adult spitting on an adult is assault.

    oh ok now im learning so if you strike a child is for there own good but if you strike and adult its assault mmm makes sense

    So teach children that if someone is smaller than them you can hit them, gee thats gotta suck for the dwarfs of the world hey.

    No thanks i wil stick to ABA therapy thanks

    Default How would you respond if your child...

    If DOCs wont do anything about foster children being slapped in care wtf makes any of you think they will do anything about a mother slapping her own child?

    I don't have anything else to add to this thread other than I would drag my child out of that restaurant for any of that behaviour.

    See i think if an adult spat in the face on someone that would be assault also, so you may or may get away with that in a court of law as that may be seen as self defence.
    I however dont think the same could be said for a small child.

    Meh each to there own i prefer to get to the root of why children act in a such a way, there is no way i would tolerate spitting ( like i explained above with my massive explination of what i would do ) but i wouldnt slap them

    But you've said several times now that slapping someone would be an uncontrolled response from you. So by your own admission if a child in your care spat at you, you would then slap them as you're unable to control your behaviour like a normal adult.

    You dont sound like a person who should be caring for children as employment...

    And the fact that you can't grasp the ridiculousness of you justifying your inability to control your own violent physical reaction while at the same time condemning a CHILD for being unable to control theirs is phenomenal.

    Yes! This!
    I'd be horrified if someone was caring for my children who admitted to having "an uncontrolled response".
